Can you tell us more about the course structure?

Our Master’s course generally starts in mid-September with the Core Course lasting until December. After a short break for Christmas in December and January, the curriculum continues with our short courses until August, when students hand in their thesis and take their final exams. The graduation ceremony takes place in early October.

During the first week of classes in September, we will spend a few days outside of Heidelberg for an intercultural training so that the students can get know each other and the members of the Teaching Unit. The stay in a hostel and all meals during our trip will be provided free of charge. 

Our Master’s course is a very structured programme and we do not follow the University's schedule. Students have to attend classes from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm every day with attendance being mandatory.
